    New psu dilema

    I am currently building a PC for my son
    specs -
    Abit AW8 i955X
    1GB Corsair XMS2
    80Gb DiamondMax 10
    XFX 7800GT
    Pentium D 930

    I was thinking using my PSU wich is a Antec Neopower and getting somethig else for my PC.
    The thing is i like the Antec it has modular cables a quiet 120mm fan and a dedicated molex for the case fans.
    Can anybody recomend something similar or better with the same atributes or should i keep it and get my son something else?

    seasonic are very highly rated but quite expensive http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=256337
    if you like modular, the hiper type-r is reasonably priced and looks pretty cool http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=228620.
    There is also a newer version of the antec neopower, which is more efficient http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/99138

    Hope this helps

    Thanks chazt
    I was looking at the new antecs not sure about that little fan though.
    The hiper type-r is nice looking but on the manufacturers site it shows it with violet brading and bright red molex connectors ooh

    Yes MantisCSS i was agreeing with you I was unsure about the violet braiding and bright red molex connectors shown on the Hiper site Here
    Then i found the review above and it showed all black plugs and braiding

    imn nto sure boutt he ultra violet m8, mine arent, and neither are my m8s, maybe it depends onw hat colour u get, but here is a pic of mine in my system to give u an idea.
    just blue cables, same colour as the LED and PSU case. looks sweet.
